    What’s wrong with teaching kids to show proper respect for the flag?
    What is ironic is you left wingers have a problem with someone wearing a flag as a shirt but have no problem when left wingers burn the flag..........

    We haven't burned a flag since 1968. Where have you been?

    Left wingers burned flags in 1991 at protests during the Gulf War and prior to invading Iraq.......They even burned a soldier in effigy...........Were you there?

    So you're calling the flag code promulgated by the US government left-wing?

    While I'm not a left-winger by any means, you are sure right that I have a problem with somebody wearing a flag as apparel. It is obscene and disrespectful to the flag that I love so dearly. I also have a problem with anybody burning a flag, although I recognize their Constitutional right to do so.

    That's a nice ploy, but it's irrelevant in this thread.

    That and the fact that this was never mentioned anywhere, in any news outlet or comment from the school. This is simply an attempt to make excuses for the principal's behavior.

    Ploy? It's at the heart of the issue, in this cartoonist's opinion. Sure, I recognize what the administrator actually suspended the students for, but I find it highly irritating that in all this discussion nobody is bothering to bring up the fact that what these kids did is highly disrespectful to the flag.

    Very good point about proper respect.
    You do realize the difference between wearing an actual flag as clothing and wearing an t-shirt with a "picture" of the flag.
